Course Description: This hybrid course will cover the roles and functions of a scribe, as well as medical terminology, coding, use of an EHR, and various progress note formats. Upon completion, students will be prepared to sit for the Apprentice Medical Scribe Professionals (AMSP™) Certification exam. This class will be a mix of classroom hours and online work.
As the use of Electronic Health Records continues to become more widespread in the healthcare industry, the need for Medical Scribes continues to grow. This quickly emerging profession allows the Scribe to work directly with physicians to accurately document all aspects of the patient visit.
CVCC offers a pre-course, The American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) class, to train students to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an AED. This class is specifically designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills.
CVCC offers an optional pre-course, Medical Terminology Bootcamp, designed to assist students in learning medical language and basic structure and function of the human body.
